In the Huffington Post article, “The Future of Fashion: Academy of Art University NYFW Shows,” author Stephen Rabinov highlights graduate designers at the 21st runway showcase. Co-authored by DairiaKymberHarvin, Rabinov’s article turns the limelight to some of the Academy of Art University’s BFA and MFA graduates who debuted their fashions. Rabinov provides beautiful images of the various designs and tags them with the name of their designer, along with a tiny bio and the source of the designer’s inspiration. Rabinov wrote, “Considering the diverse backgrounds of the designers themselves – from mainland China to coastal Maine with a few far-off places in-between – the range of ideas, silhouettes and craftsmanship techniques impressed the audience. . .”
